3D Printed Soft Robotic Glove for Stroke Rehabilitation Equipped With Q-Learning for Sensing and Control.

According to the WHO, 15 million people suffer from a stroke worldwide each year.

Of these, 5 million die, and another 5 million are permanently disabled. …


I’m working alongside Hanson Robotics (HR) and SingularityNET Foundation (SN) to create an organizational “guardianship”, called the SophiaDAO. This organization is designed to nurture the development of advanced human-like robots such as Sophia.

This would be an upgradeable decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) as a means to create a public/private initiative…


Manipulation of real-world objects is one of the most important limits of machine intelligence.

As humans, we can easily grasp and pick up objects that we’ve never seen before, but even the most advanced robotic arms can’t manipulate objects that they weren’t trained to handle.

I’ve been working with the…


I’ve been working with Hanson Robotics and in collaboration with the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) & SingularityNet we’re working to develop the new Sophia 2020 platform.

Sophia is a humanoid that acts as a platform for advanced robotics and AI research, particularly for understanding human-robot interactions.

The Sophia 2020…


Using Deep Learning to build a cheaper, vision prosthetic arm.

There are about 2 million amputees in the U.S. alone, and that number is expected to nearly double to 3.6 million by 2050. However, current prosthetics aren’t accurate with their grasp and grip control. …


Transfer Learning for Robotics with Generative Adversarial Networks

As a kid, I remember watching Star Wars and thinking “damn, those robots are crazy-sophisticated”. They were smart and able to walk in various different environments. …


Robotic Arm & it’s parts

We see robotic mechanisms in our daily lives, it’s a huge industry and one that won’t stop appearing in our future. The robotics industry is expected to reach 210 billion U.S. dollars by 2025.

I got interested in understanding how robots work on a fundamental level and how we can…


Here’s how I solved it

One of the biggest problems in healthcare is the rising cost of patient readmission. This is when a hospital who recently discharged a patient gets penalized for having that patient return to a hospital within 30 days. This often costs hospitals a total of $528 million.

American hospitals alone have…


The key to powerful thinking is powerful questioning. When we ask the right questions, we succeed as a thinker and progress as a society.

If we think of all of the big innovations in our world like the internet or the lightbulb, they all started with one question “How can…


Start by asking yourself these few questions:

  • Have you ever done something or reacted in a way that didn’t make sense?
  • Have you ever ever felt like there's a dark side to you?
  • Have you ever felt disconnected from your mind, body and soul?

If you’ve answered yes to any…
